  1. Looking for honest opinion on the RCL Grandeur of the Seas. Have never been on a RCL ship. We are a 60-something couple and have previously sailed with Holland America, Queen Mary 2, and a ton of times on Norwegian. The bride found a great price on the Grandeur for a 2023 Caribbean cruise. With the pricing so good (too good???) we are leaning towards a suite cabin. With the price so good, I started to research the Grandeur. Note that is a smaller & older ship. We are not interested in wall climbing or daredevil pool slides. Can somebody who was been on the Gran
  2. With the recent announcements of porting from St. Martin and Nassau, I am wondering if plans for Grandeur to sail from Barbados have been cancelled. I've seen nothing recently about that which was to start this summer. Any news?
  3. Hello all We are big RCL cruisers (got married on Allure), but are currently booking our first cruise with our baby - he will be just under 2 at time of sailing (taking advantage of the free flight haha). We are looking at Grandeur out of Barbados, as we LOVE the itinerary (Jan 2, 2022 - ABC islands), and we also adore Barbados. Grandeur is probably my least favorite ship (and not that baby friendly haha) but its small and intimate, so we figure a good place to start. Plus price is awesome! We are booking connecting oceanview (deck 4, midship) right now, but I'm really strug
  4. What are the least noisiest JS cabins on deck 8? I realize the WJ & pools are on 9 but JS availability only on 8. Will be on Enchantment in March 2022.
  5. We have never left from an international port or had to fly to a cruise port for that matter. Once we are booked, how do we view the flight and hotel packages that Royal Caribbean has arranged?
  6. Thanks to @coneyravenover on the blog for discovering this posting Unfortunately (for me, anyway) the links are not working but maybe this is a preview of what they may be planning for Grandeur ?
  7. I know she's an older ship, which I like (sailed a lot on Explorer and Voyager, never on the mega-ships). Has anyone sailed on her and what are your thoughts? I like the Barbados itineraries for 2022. Hope RCCL will be sailing!
  8. If you want to sail the Grand Old Lady again, you have to go to Barbados. https://www.cruisehive.com/grandeur-of-the-seas-to-begin-sailing-from-barbados-this-december/45862
  9. A german cruise blog just reported that Rhapsody + Grandeur will dock in the British Virgin Islands for a warm lay up!
  10. Since they sold Empress (my preferred RCL ship) and I have FCC that I need to use was thinking of booking an inside cabin on Enchantment of the Seas. I have been on Grandeur and thought it was OK. I do not like the huge ships. Also, wanted to sail out of a Northeast port (so I can drive to the port) and this limits me to Enchantment.
  11. Anyone have information on the status of Grandeur? Will she sail again for Royal? Will Royal have her sail for a few cruises in 2021? Will Enchantment still permanently replace her in Baltimore? So many questions . . . More than a little time! Katherine
  12. Before I get flamed, we love Grandeur, sailed her many times and met great people and crew over the years. We were on the last cruise on March 7, before Royal ceased world operations on March 14. I just checked online and the only cruise that is listed is January 2, 2021, a 7 nighter. That chances of that happening are slim to none. As we all know nothing above 7 nights is listed until next November on any ship . When Royal begins operations again, they want "smart" ships that passengers can no everything using the app on their phone. They also want advanced HVAC systems. And of course larger
  13. I'm booked on Grandeur for Jan 21 from Baltimore. I seriously doubt that it will sail, given the CDC stuff. However, yesterday I noticed that RCL is now only listing one January cruise and ALL of Feb, Mar, and Apr are grayed out. Anyone know why?
  14. We would love to book a Grand Suite, but all suites are right below the Windjammer/Pool deck. Please help! I'm so afraid of the noise from the deck above. What has been your experience? Thank you so much.
  15. We are on the “LAST” cruise on the Grandeur out of Baltimore in March 2021 and are wondering what is the future of the Grandeur OTS.
  16. Grandeur is/was scheduled to go to Pullmantur in the 2nd quarter of 2021. With all Pullmantur ships being scrapped, will she still leave Royal? Is she the first ship of a new Pullmantur, or will she stay with Royal. Not hearing anything from Royal about the future of the Grandeur.
  17. (12 p.m. EDT) -- Royal Caribbean has confirmed that the 1996-built Grandeur of the Seas will remain a part of the company's cruise fleet. The Vision Class ship, affectionately known as "Lady G" by Cruise Critic members and fans around the world, was originally scheduled to move over to Spanish subsidiary Pullmantur in the spring. Those ... View the full article

  19. I apologize in advance if this has been addressed somewhere. Can someone tell me what perks/benefits are associated with a Junior Suite on Grandeur (besides more space). I think I read extra C& A points and robes for use in room. Anything else? TIA!
  20. We have a book cruise on Grandeur OTS in late September sailing out of Baltimore. (5 nights) What are the odds or peoples thoughts if that will happen?
  21. While on the Mar 7, 2020 sailing on the Grandeur of the Seas, we were offered 100% refund or 125% FCC since we weren’t able to go to the majority of the ports on our itinerary. We applied on Mar 22, 2020 for the 100% refund and were told it we would receive thE refund, but would take 30 days. We have yet to receive our refund. Has anyone that was on this sailing who applied for the refund received credit on their credit card?
  22. Greetings—Dragon of the Seas and DH here from central Virginia. [Agnes and Alan] We are doing a B2B on the Grandeur of the Seas and we invite you to join us. . . . and wish us luck. I often do a live thread if we are taking a cruise that we have not done before. [i.e. new ports, B2B, TA, etc.] Since we sailed Grandeur last Spring for a B2B with a similar itinerary I had decided not to do a live thread this time. I was not sure people would be interested in hearing about the Grandeur since she is being sold. However, the whole coronavirus situation has changed my mind. I know
  23. I had originally gotten an oceanview cabin through a casino website for our July 9th Grandeur cruise. It was for myself & my husband free, just taxes, my teen girls discounted rate plus taxes. We then paid a discounted rate to upgrade all of us to spacious oceanview, as the prices dropped significantly once coronavirus hit worldwide & cruise industry ground to a halt. I know there is a chance we may not sail at all on July 9th, we are still hoping for the best though. We are being told we can pay $420 total, for all 4 of us to upgrade to the junior suite n
  24. Getting underway with Grandeur of the Seas! 12 day cruise to the Caribbean. Our stops have been modified to Puerto Rico, St Maarten, Dominica, Barbados, and St Kitts and Nevis. Make sure to check out DragonoftheSeas' live for their B2B on the Grandeur! Already I have forgotten a few things--my Japanese textbooks, a pair of sunglasses (🙈), and a few other small things. Oh well. We will survive, and persevere! With the more intensive check ins, there was a bit of delay. The hand sanitizers are very aggressive (appreciated, but I just did it 10 feet back!). Boarding was
  25. Going on the Grandeur in July - just booked today!!!! I think most of these questions are pretty broad & relate to Royal in general though. Do they always do themed nights at one of the clubs on board the ship? How do you know before the cruise if they are going to do them & what they are? Like 80s night etc. Any examples of theme nights & yes, do they always do a theme night? Silly question, but does Royal do bingo on board? lol I like to waste my money on bingo. Yes I say that, as I have never won big on any of the cruises I have t
